It is sold out and rented out everywhere. I wanted to try this bad boy. How is it?

I've been extremely impressed. The focus speed is very good and I only rarely miss shots. my #1 issue is when using extenders, the range is limited to 300-500mm (equivalent to the 420-700mm with the 1.4x). With the 100-400mm IS II, I could have 140mm as the base for those situations where a bird/mammal gets too close. I've had the 1.4x glued to the lens the majority of the time.
